Ebates, are your Big Fat Checks on hold?

Ebates claims their users can receive Big Fat Checks for purchases made through their website, and promise these “Big Fat Checks” come every three months if you have more than $5.01 available in your Ebates account from cash back purchases. They also claim you just find your store and click their coupon link and that’s it your on your way to your next Big Fat Check. Not!

In reality what long time customers have found is that not all their purchase credits arrive in their Ebates account, customer care is not there and their big fat check has been pushed out another three months and only Ebates knows why.

This well known site was great when it was not so well known. Now inquiries to missing tracking ticket purchases, and “Wheres my big fat payment” go unanswered because Ebates customer care doesn’t care anymore.

The best cash back site around is Fatwallet.com, sign up today and start receiving you cash back right away!

Keranique, the “Risk Free” scam

Keranique is a regrow hair product, that actually makes claims of a “Risk Free” free trial with a $7.95 shipping charge, which requires a credit card for payment. What Keranique doesn’t want you to know is that “risk Free” trial comes with a 2 month supply purchase requirement, so once you receive their 60 day supply, after 30 days you are sent the next shipment. When you try to cancel after you notice the $160.00 unauthorized charge from Keranique on your credit card, that’s when you find out another shipment is on it’s way.

There is nothing “Risk Free” about subscription products. Never give these companies your account information even if you think it’s just a small shipping charge it’s “Risky Business“, because they will use that information to bill you again and again as long as they can.  It’s hard to even tell if this regrow hair product really works, with all the complaints about fraud, unauthorized charges and the outrageous price, it sounds more like the only thing you will get with this product is scammed.

The WaxVac is wacked

WaxVac has been referred to as a useless piece of junk, a rip off, and just another buy one get one scam with unauthorized offer signups and upgrade charges. They make a claim the item cost is $10.00 plus $6.99 shipping, but in reality this offer could run as much as $50.00 or more with the offers you will automatically be signed up for and billed. Consumer beware.

At least Q-tips won’t leave you broke with a bunch of worthless offers, never give WaxVac your credit card information, because once you do you won’t get a total for your order and the website just goes away and becomes unavailable, then you are signed up for every offer in their book and charged immediately with these unauthorized charges, and will never be able to get a refund.

Stretch Genie, don’t wish for it.

There really aren’t a lot of reviews out there about Stretch Genie yet. But like the other buy one get one free scams on TV, you’ll be sorry you ever wasted your money on this product.

Some reviews about Stretch Genie are good, but others mention excessive shipping rates, tricky selling practices, and Stretch Genie causing holes and overstretching of their shoes. There are lots of free ways to stretch your shoes, some people mentioned newspaper, zip lock bags of water and other great ideas. If you insist on trying the stretch genie do yourself a favor and buy it at Walmart, or you’ll be wishing you didn’t buy it at all.

The Wisdom Prophet

The Wisdom Center and Dr. Mike Murdock are scamming people out of money with the well known “Sow your Seed” scam. With promises of a debt free households, Dr. Mike Murdock suggests you give him $1,000 for his obedience seed but don’t expect any miracles he say’s because things take time.

No wonder these scam artists call themselves the The Wisdom Center, because they have the wisdom to scam in the name of God. This organization uses people’s faith to steal from them, Dr. Mike Murdock tells them they need to give to the Lord the one thing they have that Dr. Mike Murdock wants, their money, if they ever expect a blessing or freedom from debt in their life.

In the infomercial Dr Murdock even comes up with the number of donations, I mean seeds he expects to sow, 1,189 seeds a commercial at $1,000 dollars a piece. You do the math, that’s a lot of profit in the pulpit for doing nothing!

Colony Brands the Choose and Charge Scam

http://www.colonybrands.com/

If you have ever shopped through one of these Choose and Charge Catalog companies associated with Swiss Colony, now known as Colony Brands, and have a Choose and Charge account, consumer beware. There is no longer just a small finance charge for your purchases, they are now charging outrageous interest rates and the information is not provided in their monthly billing statement, they have also started charging $19 late fee‘s just like real credit cards. They provide no information on previous purchases or fee’s charged to your account on their statements, unless you the consumer request it. All in violation of the Consumer Protection Act

Long time customer accounts have gone over their normal minimum payment, even when they made purchases based on the sample information provided above, their minimum payment was still bound to increase even though they spent less then the “Stays the same” amount, so don’t buy it. They just want to suck you into making that purchase with their misinformation about your account leading you to believe your minimum payment will stay the same even if you make that purchase, but with all their new fee’s and unknown interest rates that’s not possible, shame on this company.

Even long time customers that have threatened not to shop with them anymore have received nothing but negative responses from their awful customer service representatives. Glad to know they care about the customers they are scamming!

Beware of these sites they are all related to Colony Brands:

Sam’s Club Plus Scam

 

SamsClub is scamming long time members out of more higher Membership fees by way of the Plus Membership. The cashier tries to up sell the higher price Plus Membership at the checkout, when the members regular Membership is about to expire for $12 dollars, then when the member goes to renew the total is $100, and they leave no option to remove this Plus Membership from your account without going to customer service.

Why is this Membership being forced on members at renewal time, we should have the option to choose what kind of Membership we interested in, and SamsClub should be ashamed.

It’s bad enough we really don’t get a full year out of our $40 memberships, now their forcing higher priced Memberships on us at checkout and renewal time. There are no fans of this SamsClub scam. If were not getting benefits with a $40 Membership, what are we getting, and why are we wasting are money. Do the math, and then do yourself a favor and shop at your local Walmart Super Center, no fees or up sell just savings.
